London to woodland Christian high

So last night we went to see Terry. He rode with us from Shiprock to Colorado Springs. We had a nice dinner and a good visit. This morning we woke up to breakfast. Bacon and eggs, and home fries. That was the best breakfast I've had on the whole trip.  
After our goodbyes we went back to the school. 
We started out and  it took a while to get all the parts moving again. It usually takes about 15-20 km to get things moving well.  Harold and I soon caught up with Barb and Jane. They rode with us for the first half of the day. The pic above shows a place that was full of lawn ornaments. 
After climbing a bunch of hills we came across a place with a totem pole. I have to say the roads were smooth and the traffic was calm. The sun came out a little late today and the temperature was perfect for riding. What a great day.
Karl agrees that this was a great sag stop. 
Here's a field of sunflowers. I noticed that one was facing the other way. We called that one a Len flower. 
Here's a truck I spotted. It was perfect because across the street was one of six Shannon stops. Talk about support. It was pretty Impressive. 
I stop at almost all the Shannon stops because the had really good baked goods. 
When I got to the school I was met by the kooys. Uncle Adrian and tante Willie showed us the tree that was planted in memory of Dan. 
It was great to see people camp right under the shade of his tree. 
It was good to see some family. This is Dave and Trina. 
This is my three cousins Dave , Scott, and Linda. 
Well it was great to have  them around. See you all tommorow. Len.
